…The world is made of paper?

If you had to draw the world around you, it would apparently look a little something like this commercial:

…Audrina Patridge likes bikinis and burgers?

Audrina Patridge Bikini Burger

First there was Paris Hilton, then Padma Lakshmi, and now Audrina Patridge from The Hills, Playboy and, oddly enough, PETA, is the latest to put burger in her face for Carl’s Jr.

As you can imagine, it’s pretty difficult to read what it says during the :30 seconds that the spot airs, but for the curious, MacJournals has transcribed the entire thing (from the HD version of the clip) and posted it for the world to see.

Please note that when you first receive your PC there is some suggested work that needs to be done before PCs can perform at their peak. These steps include, but are not limited to, downloading and installing necessary drivers for peripherals. These drivers may include printers, scanners, cameras, storage devices, music players, and other media devices. There may be more depending on your needs. It is also recommended that first time users remove all unneeded bloatware and remove all operational components.
